Unchanging Roys Put ‘Succession’ On Notice: Change or Risk Failing

In Succession season 4, the HBO series, the Roy family is at the helm of a large media conglomerate, Waystar RoyCo. Logan Roy, the family patriarch, is facing serious health issues. His four children, Connor, Kendall, Roman, and Shiv, all have different relationships with the company but all now find themselves in the position of having to prepare for the future of the company and the family without their father.

Each of the four siblings is vying for a prominent role in the business and a chance to shape its future. The situation has forced the Roy family to confront their differences and come together as a unit. Despite their differences, each of the siblings has the ambition to make their mark on the company and secure their place within the family business.


With Logan’s health in decline, the four Roy children must now juggle their own plans for the future, while also making difficult decisions for the future of their family’s business. It’s a tough situation, and only time will tell what the outcome will be for the Roy family and the company.

The fourth season of HBO’s critically acclaimed show, Succession, recently premiered. Though the cast and crew have created something extraordinary over the past three seasons. The cast includes Jeremy Strong, Sarah Snook, Brian Cox, Kieran Culkin, Nicholas Braun, Matthew Macfadyen, Alan Ruck, J. Smith-Cameron, Alexander SkarsgÃ¥rd, Justine Lupe, Dagmara Dominczyk, and Arian Moayed.

Staying the Same: What Won’t Change in the Future?

Kendall, the second-eldest son, is often overshadowed by his father’s expectations. His father is overbearing and this has a negative impact on Kendall’s self-confidence. Shiv’s behavior is erratic, as she tries to gain power and outsmart her devious father. Roman’s intelligence is often overshadowed by his tendency to sexually harass people and his lack of business knowledge.


Conner is the weakest of the siblings due to his lack of direction. His idealistic attitude is misguided. In order to keep the show interesting, Season 4 needs to come up with some fresh storylines. Kendall is the one who gets overshadowed most by his father’s expectations. His sense of self is heavily impacted by his father’s presence.

Shiv’s behavior is erratic as she strives to outwit her father, who is known to be manipulative. Roman is sharp and intelligent, but his tendency to be sexually inappropriate and his lack of business knowledge often overshadow his abilities. Conner is the weakest of the bunch, as his idealistic attitude is misguided and he has no clear direction.

Unravel the Possibilities: Get Ready for the Twist We’ve Been Waiting For!

With Logan Roy’s advanced age and often compromised physical and mental health, it is easy to question how long he will be able to maintain his iron grip on the throne of his company. Throughout the show, Logan has faced multiple health issues including a serious stroke and a heart attack, and at the end of last season, he was very close to being ousted.

However, if the writers of the show were to speed up the process, the logical pick would be Logan himself. His children have grown tired of being manipulated and played like pawns, so it would make sense if Logan was assassinated by one of his own.

It could be Roman or Shiv, or even someone like Matthew McFayden or Cousin Greg who have both been affected by the manipulative and calculating Shiv. With Logan’s death, the show could take a new direction, with the remaining Roys jockeying for power, and a new corporate game could begin.

Roy-ally Breaking the Law: A Tale of Roy on Roy Crime

The Roy children have taken sibling rivalry to a whole new level with the stakes of their futures, along with money and prestige, so high. Each season, their discord and backstabbing escalate to the point of Season 3, where they form an alliance because none of them has the courage or ability to dethrone Pops Roy.


To increase their chances of being crowned the new king or queen, one of them must eliminate some of the competition. Kendall is a likely candidate as he has shown signs of becoming unhinged under stress. Shiv could also get Tom to do it with a bit of flattery or affection.

Roman is conniving enough for this task, but would probably mess it up somehow. That leaves Conner as the most unlikely, yet most impactful Roy to dispose of Logan if he can be taken away from his presidential campaign.

The Little Guys Make Big Impacts: Don’t Forget About the Supporting Characters

Gerri Kellman (J. Cameron Smith) is a character on the show Waystar who has been sexually harassed, belittled, and underestimated. Viewers of the show would be interested to see how she could make a play for the checkmate in the upcoming season 4 of the show.

Gerri is an intelligent and experienced businesswoman, however, it is unknown if she has the skills to utilize her power in the right way and make the required moves to succeed in her mission. Willia Ferreya (Justine Lupe) is another character that could potentially cause chaos in the Roy family. She is Conner’s wife, but she was once a call girl, and it could be possible that she has been using Conner to get closer to the Roy family.


There is Rava Roy (Natalie Gold) who has been on and off the show, but it is clear that she still has a connection to Logan. It is likely that she has more influence than we think, and we can only speculate on what she might do in the upcoming season. There are multiple characters on the show who have been underestimated and could potentially cause trouble in season 4, and it is exciting to ponder the possibilities of what the showrunners have in store for us.

Wrap Up

In conclusion, Succession is one of the most popular and compelling television dramas of the past decade, despite its characters being portrayed as rich, entitled, and selfish.
